Today's Bouquets

  • My sister-in-law, Hanh, just celebrated her first Birthday on American soil! My brother, KC, met Hanh several years back on a missions trip to Vinh Long, Viet Nam—located in the Mekong Delta. It was there that he met this beautifully joyful, Christian Vietnamese woman. Hanh was in her late 30's and KC in his 40's and neither had been married before. They corresponded for awhile as love bloomed and they eventually followed their hearts into marriage. After wading through months of bureaucracy and a melange of paperwork, it was the fervent prayers of many that ultimately gave them favor. Now, happily, Hanh is sharing life with us!
  • I mentioned in a previous post that Barry has been looking for new employment due to the sale the business he worked for. Thankfully, income opportunities are surfacing, many of which will assist us this week. There have also been new private lesson inquiries for me! Your prayers are appreciated!
  • I have an update to Briana and Brian's engagement (scroll down to see the original post)! Brian's brother, Gil, took over 300 photos of the proposal and celebration. I will be sharing some of those photos as soon as I receive them!
NOTE: If you enjoy Giveaways, be sure to check out the top sidebar of my blog. I endeavor to keep an updated list of any current Giveaways that I am aware of.
